A Fine Piece of History! Built in high Victorian style for the Bank of NSW as its Chambers and residence, this exquisite Old Beauty is zoned 3 (Business Zone). Located on the corner of George Street, Singleton’s main artery to the New England Highway, the two story building designed by architect Benjamin Backhouse of Backhouse and Lough of Sydney is constructed from brick, stuccoed and scribed to look like stone. Retaining its original features of sandstone porch, slate roof with domed ventilation vents, large pane sash windows, elaborate cast iron picket fence, gate and verandah balustrade, pressed metal ceilings, original bank vault (perfect for a wine cellar) fireplaces, wide cedar door jams, skirting boards and timber floorboards, with the advantage of both side street and off street parking the building would suit either an elaborate private residence, commercial venture or a combination of the two.
